Sharon Osbourne, anchor of Fox Nation, claimed she "had no idea" what transpired after CBS "ambushed" her on-air and, in the process, her close friend turned her back on her.
Osbourne received flak from CBS for supporting Piers Morgan's criticism of Oprah Winfrey's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and for reassuring her that her longtime friend wasn't a racist for dismissing Markle's claims of racism directed at the royal family.
She yelled during the break, asking, "What the Hell are you doing to me?," during her appearance on "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday. "This was not rehearsed. Why are you torturing me like this? We return from the break, and they immediately begin again.
"Everything we had planned to discuss that day and had practised washed out."
Osbourne questioned why the network had stated that they would discuss other topics but had chosen to devote 20 minutes to her. On March 26, 2021, she was ultimately ejected from "The Talk."
Osbourne was challenged by host Rachel Campos-Duffy about her tense friendship with a longstanding friend, who was a major factor in Osbourne's departure.
She frequently visited my house. She used to declare her desire to marry my son and become an Osbourne. You know, that was a joke, and she came to England. We travelled together, shared laughs and tears, and laughed a lot. Then all of a sudden, "Oh, what's wrong with you?"
Osbourne claimed she never understood why her friend chose to turn on her, but she dismissed the experience as the result of thinking she knew someone she actually did not.
Everyone has a right to their own perspective and viewpoint, she said. "Okay, if that's your viewpoint. Because of how I feel, you don't have to hit me, fire me, or try to ruin my life.
